between the united states and iran. the americans have repeatedly said that the iranian government must change. and the iranians -- >> behavior. changes behavior. >> translator: sure, but after all what does that mean? can one country based on just their own sole opinion decide an establish a red line for another country and then threaten attacks? when have we threatened to attack the zionists. we have never threatened them. >> you have said you wanted to remove them from the fate of the earth. >> translator: yes. we say occupation, occupation should to be done away with. war like behavior should to be done away with. terrorism should to be done away with. the killing of women and children should to be done away with. bombardment of houses on top of people's heads in their own country has been done away with. has the zionist regime done any of this? no. we say to do away with these things and we've also suggested the solution. we have said that the solution is that the palestinian people should decide in a free election for their own country own land. >> last time i had a conversation w
the possibility that yesterday's attack was a planned terrorist strike. the united states has evacuated all personnel from benghazi to tripoli. officials originally believed the attack was prompted by an anti-islamic video, but said this attack was too coordinated to have been spontaneous. >> reporter: good evening from washington. these shocking murders of our diplomats serve as a reminder of how dangerous the culture clash still is between the west and much of the muslim world. and how intense the clashes now between the rivals in the race for the white house. the u.s. consulate was still burning when president obama ordered in u.s. marines to protect american officials remaining in libya. he learned this morning four diplomats were dead. >> the united states condemns in the strongest terms this outrageous and shocking attack. >> reporter: riots preceded the deaths, first in cairo, then in benghazi, libya's number two city, well known to u.s. ambassador chris stevens. he was there when u.s. air raids prevented a massacre by moammar gadhafi. stevens reportedly braved the riot to help evacu
against the united states. i think it is here. and from a pure political point of view, this is an area of strength for president obama that they thought could essentially be put away as there's more after focus on the economy and contrasting president obama with governor romney. now this question of american policy, accusations of american weakness in the middle east, all of those things are in play and here come those presidential debates to really hash all that out. >> and governor romney has challenged the president's leadership in the middle east after the libya attack trying to politicize. has it resonated beyond the republican base? >> well, we don't know yet. we'll test that out over time as we look at polling and as these two debate one another. the reality is that president obama would be perhaps more on the defensive if it were not for governor romney getting so much criticism for his statements this week criticizing the president even before all the facts were known and in the immediate wake of the death of our ambassador in libya, chris stevens. >> the republicans are not b

, not credible as president of the united states. he's too greedy and too disconnected from concerns of the average american. the romney campaign are also running an intensely negative campaign, not based so much on obama's personal characteristics, his values or the idea that he's somehow in some sort of fundamental way corrupt. whereas the obama people are calling romney a charlatan, suggesting he might be a felon because of the -- how he's handled the bane issue, as stephanie cutter did. that's aimed at tearing him down personally. but i don't have any sympathy for romney, that's what he did. the republicans did that. chris: you keep count in the campaign of what romney said every day. do they feel they lost the edge they had coming out of tampa? >> the oconventions were so close together. they had been telegraphing they expected a convention bounce and when they got to tampa, expectations were being tamped down. since the democrats followed so close on his heel. one reason they're so confident, the democrats, that is, is in part because they feel they've done a good job over the
